The VIP Vernissage of the 2019 Helpmann Academy Graduate Exhibition.

2019 marks Helpmann Academy’s 25th year, and we are kicking off our silver anniversary in style with our VIP Vernissage event!

A Vernissage is traditionally a private viewing of an art exhibition – a sneak peek at the next crop of South Australian arts talent while mingling with fellow art lovers over a glass (or 3!) of bubbly.

The Helpmann VIP Vernissage has gained a reputation for being the perennial arts event to kick off the new year, with attendees treated to a curated selection of our states most promising contemporary visual artists. This event is an exclusive chance to snap up a unique piece from an emerging voice, with works of exceptional quality, imagination and technical skill on display and available to view before the exhibition opens to the public.

So put on your best party threads, gather your friends and come celebrate 25 years of the Helpmann Academy.
